Repaint Lesson - Step Nine
Next I paint in the first layer of eye shadow using Coffee Bean in Folk Art. I paint it darker on the outside corners and lighter toward the middle having put no paint in the center of the eyelids. I already know this is going to be tricky because the doll has big eyelids and my muse today, Britney Spears, does not. I can work my eyelid line down with shading and build my eyeliner up.
It looks terrible - doesn't it! Just remember this when you are painting. Keep it as clean as possible and your layers very thin. There are many more layers coming. In the end, your doll will come alive.
